Carte Blanche Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"Our company is presently working with Chris Stage and we so pleased with the projects he is involved with currently. Chris Stage is an excellent young Architect who makes our custom home projects go effortlessly. He is very patient, thinks outside of the box and attends all of our onsite meetings with a smile and afterwards we all receive minutes from our meetings. His ideas are innovative, current and he works very closely with the construction team, designer and homeowner throughout the entire project. I would recommend Cart Blanche Studio over and over again, he is amazing! Lisa Vitta Home Beach Designs"

Laney LA, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"It's my pleasure to inform Houzz and its body of consumers of the great service I received from Laney LA. Having been a developer for 2 decades, this wasn't my first rodeo, per se, but I did want to hit this project out of the park so I decided to use a designer to facilitate my renovation of a Spanish themed single family home in Los Angeles. After meeting with 3 designers, all of whom had impressive resumes, we decided on working with Laney LA. In this field of business, with something as subjective as design, you never know how well your vision will be maintained. Now, being 95% underway and my contract with Laney completely fulfilled, I'm more than pleased with the service I received and the implementation of our collective choices. For me, the true gauge of customer service isn't how I'm treated at the beginning of a job but how I'm treated at the end of a job; when all payments have been made and the project is still going. I'm so impressed with Laney's bedside manner; their above and beyond approach to customer service. In my opinion, their customer service models the Platinum 'American Express' type of business acumen. They truly deliver extraordinary service - our appreciation for them initiated the drafting of this review; it's well deserved but more importantly earned!"

Sato Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"My experience with Audrey Sato was outstanding. She truly is a talented architect who has both great vision and is detail oriented; making the process of designing and constructing my fitness studio a fun and seamless one. I appreciated that she kept in constant contact with me, and was very hands on from design through construction. I felt comfortable asking questions and giving input, and am was very satisfied with the results. Pictures of the studio can be found on Facebook under 'The Dailey Method Calabasas'. Its a beautiful space. Clients of the studio rave about how beautiful, well lit, and comfortable the space is. And we owe it all to Audrey Sato Design Studio!"

Edward Ogosta Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"I hired Ed to design a second-story master suite addition to my house, which was originally built in the 1930s. He did a beautiful job and was very competitively priced. I had three separate contractors tell me his were the best, most detailed plans they'd ever seen, which enabled them to give more accurate bids. Additionally, the design is gorgeous - the addition (on which construction is 90% complete) looks like it was part of the original house. He was very careful not to detract from the existing curb appeal/roofline. Plus, Ed is great to work with. He's funny, smart, responsive, and he's been wonderful about staying engaged with the project. He routinely stops by the job site to ensure the construction work is actually proceeding according to his drawings. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

HH Design
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"My husband and I own a four unit apartment building in the Beverlywood area of Los Angeles that was constructed in the '40's. It was originally one of the "Co-op Style" buildings similar to the condos of today. Due to extenuating circumstances, it has been extremely difficult to update the building. HHDesign, with confidence and poise came to our rescue. Their professionalism and architectural expertise have turned a nightmare into a sweet dream. We were so impressed with their portfolio which is largely high-end and contemporary. This could have possibly been a stumbling block, however; you can imagine how pleased we were when, at their suggestion, they maintained the integrity of the building and style of the neighborhood. Even better yet, while honoring our budgetary constraints, they managed to give the building and grounds an incredibly needed facelift and artfully pulled the exterior facade into the 21st Century. We have had numerous complements from neighbors and friends and now have pride of ownership thanks to the tireless efforts and extraordinary service afforded by HHDesign. It is with the utmost sincerity that we recommend this highly efficient and talented team to the consumers of Houzz."

GT Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"We recently hired GT Architecture to create As Built drawings of a project we remodeling in Calabasas. There were no existing plans for this elaborate 10,000 sq ft 1980 Tudor. We needed detailed plans of the existing structures and site plan in order to determine the changes we want to make to the home and grounds. I am an interior designer and specialize in major remodels. Guy Turner of GT Architecture provided a truly competitive rate and delivered the plans in a very short turnaround time. GT Architecture also provided us with over 300 photos of the home, site and grounds for reference. All delivered in person with digital copies of everything. Guy was incredibly responsive from our very first inquiry and was attentive throughout the process making sure that we received exactly what we needed in order to execute the remodel. We now consider GT Architecture a valuable resource and team member and look forward to calling on their services again and again."

Jamie B Interiors
Architects and Building Designers in Culver City, CA
"Absolutely love, love, love Jamie. I hesitated to hire a designer for so long because most of the design I see is boring and cookie cutter (and I used to work in the Pacific Design Center... so I know). I wanted mid century chic with a rock 'n' roll edge. Classy, fun and nothing sterile! Jamie had the taste and direction to meet my objectives. Jamie has a knack for taking your individual taste, accenting it with color and creating magic. I was working with a smallish budget and was still amazed by how we were able to pull off so much for so little. Not to mention, she's a born organizer too. If you're a bit of a "stuff aficionado" as I am, Jamie will help you streamline your stuff and find a way to make it look beautiful. For me, this was a lot of books and a lot of vinyl records. My place feels like a HOME now. Before it felt like somewhere I dumped my clothes before I jetted off to my next business trip (and I'm always in the air). Now, I look forward to going home and most of all, am so proud my home reflects my individuality."

How do I find the best Culver City architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire California subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Culver City residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Culver City, CA provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Culver City, CA are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Culver City interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
